✧ Can you tell that this is an actual treasure?

Here’s a precious treasure, immersed in history, elegance and all that is artistic and sweet.

Your home will not only have a luxurious masterpiece that will transform your interior, but also a distinguished treasure that tells beautiful tales of Berber traditions.

To acquire this gem, we’ve travelled through the Anti-Atlas Mountains; first by car, then on foot. Berber craftswomen of the Atlas Mountains create these masterpieces based on age-old traditions that date back to Paleolithic times

Berber craftswomen of the Atlas Mountains do not know how to write with a pen - but they excel at writing with hands, needles, wool and thread. It takes 7 to 8 weeks to create this exceptional piece of art.

To collect wool, these resilient artists acquire their wool from nearby souks in the region. Seamlessly soft, extra virgin and specially harvested from a certain breed of sheep. The wool is then washed in a river using natural soap made from plants. And according to a dear Berber tradition - the wool must be laid beneath a starlit sky in order to ward off the evil eye. So you’re getting quality, evil-free Berber Rug!

After spinning the wool, the Berber craftswomen prepare their looms. And the rest - is magic! A passionate, heartwarming and delightful process takes place!

  • 100% Wool.
  • Medium-High Pile (3cm thick).
  • Natural Colour.
  • Handwoven in Morocco.

    Basic Care:

    During weaving, natural raw wool may contain small fibres. And over time, these fibres will rise to the surface. Don’t panic, it’s natural. All you need to do is suck them - lightly. Fibre loss is completely normal and natural, and new wool rugs will wear them off as it ages.

    Strain Treatment:

    It’s bound to happen. When it does, you need to act quickly to prevent drying. Use paper towels to soak up the liquid, and clean it with shampoo. When in doubt, professional dry cleaning services will have your back! The average dry cleaner in the UK will charge you 25 per m2.
